The Texas Department of Transportation is studying potential improvements along SH 16 (Bandera Road) between I-410 and Loop 1604, within the cities of Leon Valley and San Antonio. SH 16 is the 8th most congested road in the region and one of the top 100 most congested in the State of Texas.
The SH 16 (Bandera Road) project will involve the collection of traffic data to analyze project corridor congestion issues, the consideration of potential improvements, and the preparation of various environmental studies as well as the consideration of bicycle and pedestrian accommodations.
The proposed improvements will ultimately be based on traffic, local and regional access needs, safety, the avoidance and minimization of environmental impacts, and the consideration of community input.
The Traffic and Feasibility Study, development of project engineering schematics, and environmental studies will commence in December 2018 and is anticipated to take approximately 48 months.
Upcoming Public Meetings:
Texas has been aggressively acquiring private land through condemnation for transportation projects across the state to accommodate the needs of a growing population. If you have been contacted by TxDOT or any of their representatives, please contact us immediately. The important thing to remember is that even if you’ve received a letter in the mail from a condemnation entity informing you of their intentions, this does not mean that it’s a done deal. There are many ways to influence the condemnation process to ensure that your wants and needs are met, but it’s important that you involve knowledgeable professionals that can help guide you through the process.
